Laura and her father live a quiet life in their remote castle in the dense forests of Styria. It is a solitary existence for young Laura, who has no companionship except for her governess and the occasional visits of neighbouring gentry. Into this lonely life comes the mysterious house guest, Carmilla.

Slowly Laura falls under Carmilla's spell. While she is both attracted and repulsed by Carmilla, she seems unable to find the energy to resist her.

A spate of sudden wasting deaths afflict the peasants in the countryside around the castle and Laura herself falls ill. Will they manage to work out the cause of her illness in time or will she just be the latest victim of the vampire Carmilla?

    " 'Carmilla' is one of the earliest vampire tales in English prose - I believe it was first published at the close of the eighteenth century. It definitely isn't 'Dracula' but it is interesting to trace the evolution of the literary vampire and locate the similarities between early literary vampires and later representations. "

    " Forget Buffy, True blood and other trashy, dull-as-ditchwater upstarts. This is effective mix of Gothic romanticism and authentic vampire folklore, set in Styrian castle where narrator Laura and her father get lovely and mysterious guest, rosy-cheeked brunette called Carmilla. "

    " I'm glad I finally read this in full, not just the excerpt one of my teachers showed me a few years ago. I love it. :) "

    " I think this is a great book for anyone that likes Vampire novels or just wants something different to read. The story is amazing and always kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to read more. The only thing i did not enjoy about this book was how short it was but besides for that this is an amazing book. Check it out if you have time. "
